Coconut-Caramel Hot Cocoa
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
This sure hits the spot on a cold day! I love the addition of coconut rum. The coconut milk does make this super rich and creamy. I will be trying coconut milk with my other hot chocolate recipes from now on. YUM!
The coconut milk makes this a very rich and creamy drink. Being allergic to peanuts, I left it out. I thought about adding almond butter or the like, but I didn't and it wasn't missed. I just put all the ingredients into a saucepan - minus the peanut butter and coconut rum - and whisked it.I topped it off with whipped cream, toasted coconut and sprinkled it with a little cinnamon. Everyone enjoyed it!Since I didn't follow the recipe, I didn't want to rate it, but with my adjustments I would rate it about a 4.(I used Sprouts' brand coconut milk. I'm not sure that Thai Kitchen's would work as well in this recipe since it has a significant amount of solidified coconut oil on top, but I could be wrong.)
